OARC Head Coach (x1) and Associate Coaches (x2-3)
Oxford Academicals Rowing Club (OARC, or Accies for short) is a friendly, supportive and flexible rowing club, with an adult-only membership across three squads: men, women and development (mixed). We’re one of the three “town” clubs in Oxford and, despite the name, have no affiliation with university or college rowing. Our membership is growing quickly, and we are looking for enthusiastic and committed coaches to join us at an exciting time for the club.
We are a flexible and inclusive club. Our rowers range from novices to those with decades of experience, and include people wanting a more recreational approach as well as people wishing to train hard and compete. We recognise that our members have commitments away from rowing, and so we don’t have set crews outside of specific race preparation. We are proud of the inclusive and integrated nature of our squads, and maintaining this ethos is vital to the club.
In a typical year, we would be looking to race at Wallingford, Reading, Quintin, Abingdon, (WE)HORR and Vets Head through the winter, and at a mixture of local and weekend camping regattas over the summer. Depending on commitment and ability of those wishing to race, we also support rowers looking to enter higher-level regattas including Met, Women’s Henley and Henley Royal.

Coaching will primarily be from the bank on the Isis in Oxford (Head of the River to Iffley Lock), but from time-to-time coaches may be requested to accompany outings outside of Oxford, or potentially to join us on training camps (we had a very successful trip to Seville in February 2020).
Outings are on weekday mornings before work (off the water by 8 am), weekday evenings in summer, and double sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Coaches provide their availability each week and are then allocated to sessions on a discretionary basis as appropriate.
The club will pay coaching fees, on a per-session basis, invoiced by the coaches in arrears at the end of each calendar month. For the Head Coach, a time allowance for coaching coordination services will also be invoiceable.
